The head to head superiority is nothing when it comes to pakistan vs India matches in any form of the game, of course in cricket both nations fans dont want their team to lose against arch rivals but also in hockey and football things are pretty much the same and the game is 50/50 to predict.

What Channels will be showing the matches ?
India – ESPN StarSports
Pakistan – PTV

This is the first game of the 8 team competition where top two teams from each group will make it to the next round which is semifinals. Pakistan and India are in the group of death with Bangladesh and Nepal and any of the 4 teams can make it to the semifinals and here form and recent history does not count. If Pakistan can put together a good show in the group stages they have a good chance of making it to the Semifinals but Indians are favourites and of course defending Champions.
